'Yous' seem to be mainly "hype + no gnosis" - because you all seem to fail
to fully appreciate that it is a normal state of humans to "be hypnotised"
and that staged "entertainment hypnosis" or hypnosis used in clinical
contexts are both just an exaggerated (selectively highlighted for effect)
function of language.
Language is the glue that makes our respective cultures as sticky (across
generations) as they are.
And yes by all means try understanding it by facts already found and
insights already clinically confirmed. E.g. as briefly captured by the
statement (by Janov) "ideas as opiates".
